Billie Eilish is speaking candidly about the internal struggles she has in relation to her body image.

While chatting with The Guardian for a recent interview in promotion of her new album Happier Than Ever, the 19-year-old singer opened up about how she perceives her body on a day-to-day basis and the effect that social media has on those feelings.

"I see people online, looking like I've never looked," she told the outlet. "And immediately I am like, 'Oh my God, how do they look like that?' I know the ins and outs of this industry, and what people actually use in photos, and I actually know what looks real can be fake. Yet I still see it and go, 'Oh God.' That makes me feel really bad."

I just completely separate the two."

"Because I have such a terrible relationship with my body, like you would not believe, so I just have to disassociate," Eilish added.

She has not said her sexuality, so until she does I will believe that she is straight and only in to males. The question has not been answered. So far, our Queen Billie Eilish Pirate O’Connel (I’ve always wanted to do that sorry) has not confirmed nor denied anything.

"Why do we care about hair? Why does everybody hate body hair so much, but we literally have an enormous thing of hair on our heads, and that's, like, cool and pretty," she questioned. "Like, what's the difference? I mean, I love hair, and I do crazy things with my hair. I'm as guilty as everybody else. But it's so weird. If you think about it hard, you go crazy."

Getting work done, but not owning up to it, is another thing that Eilish is bothered by, as she feels it promotes "unattainable body standards."

"It's completely fine to get work done — do this, do that, do what makes you feel happy. It's just when you deny it and say, 'Oh, I got this all on my own, and if you just tried harder, you could get it.' That makes me literally furious," she shared. "It is so bad for young women — and boys, too — to see that."
